    Hey y'all. I just switched to a Google pixel 3 from an iPhone Xs max. Well. Technically I took that back and got an XR first. For some reason this year the iPhones are just lacking to me. Especially in the camera Dept. Wondering if I can get used to the smaller model !!!

    I did the same thing. I sold my iPhone XS Max on Swappa and picked up a Pixel 3 XL for $100 off at Best Buy. It's clearly a better device and I don't feel stupid paying $899 for the 128GB version like I did when I paid $1500 for the 512GB iPhone XS Max. I have an XR, but I will return it. I'm kinda done with iPhones until they overhaul iOS.

    The price tag of iphones alone is enough to turn people off.

    I'm thinking of switching from the regular xs. I'm just sceptical of the battery life on the pixel 3.

    Ironic thread, being that I currently have an XS Max and am thinking about ordering a Pixel 3 XL on Thursday when they are $200 off.

    I like Android, and the Pixel line, but I could never replace an iPhone with an Android phone. But I do feel a need for a new toy, and a discounted Pixel 3 XL would make a good play device.

    I am still on the fence though. I am trying to talk myself out of it because I really don't need another phone. But I feel the need to impulse buy sometimes. hehe

    That is my main concern as well. I have an iPhone X now and refuse to upgrade to the XS....not worth the $ at all for minor incremental "S" updates. I really want a pixel 3, but battery life is no way better than an X or XS. I had the pixel 2 and it was awful compared to the X.

    Anyone have used both an iPhone and pixel 3 to comment on battery life?

    I saw someone on Instagram post a photo today that looked better than my professional wedding photos....was taken with a pixel 3! I immediately now have the urge to pick one up. I as well don't need another phone and I know I will bounce back to my iPhone X but I am sooooo tempted to get a pixel 3

    So you both got rid of the XR? So did I! I couldn't live with the compromise of an LCD display in 2018....sorry, especially for $750 when the pixel is around that price

    The XR that bad the screen? Like worse then 8plus?

    I looked at the xr in store and I thought the display looked great. If I didn't already have the xs that would have been the phone I went with. I'm not sure why there seems to be so much negativity when the display is mentioned.

    Because when you consider Apple is going you 2013 tech at a 2018 price or the fact that you're getting sub 1080p display on a 2018 phone for that price there is a lot to be negative about.

    It is not an OLED. I'll keep it at that. For LCD screen it is fine

    So you consider the iPhone 8 a bad screen because it's lcd?

    No, nothing wrong with lcd. Pixel density and it's lack of full HD on an $800 device is laughable.

    UPDATE:

    COULDNT handle the smaller form factor of the regular 3 - mainly for typing - so I returned it for an XL.

    I agree with you. It's 2018, somehow apple still sells LCD display phones. Are there any Android high end phones being sold with an LCD display?

    I returned to iOS because Apple finally came out with their best device yet, the X with an OLED display and FINALLY wireless charging which has been around for years now along with super AMOLED displays in the android world.

    I am not spending $1,000 on another iPhone and I don't want to be forced to use an LCD display for $750 when I can spend that or less on an Android OLED display.

    How do you like the XL? I have had my X for a year. Longest I've owned a phone. I want a pixel 3 but worried about battery life compared to my X.

    Where else would they cut cost?
    LCD screen
    Aluminum frame
    3 GB ram
    250.00 savings is it worth it? I dont know ... I think if it was 600.00 be better selling point
